the sick, helping trains to cross the bayou, toting knapsacks, etc. Headquartes reserve brigade, in camp near Thibodeauxville, November 1, 1862. In my last communication, I informed you that this brigade had marched on this place, after the spirited and decisive action at Labadieville. This engagement took place at a point three miles below Napoleonville. These is a steamboat landing here called Georgia Landing---a post-office near, which goes by the name of Albemarle, and it was near Mills's plantation. I think the affair should more properly take the name of Napoleonville. The battle commenced at about eleven o'clock, and the order was given to our troops to stop firing at ten minutes past one. The remainder of the day was occupied in burying the dead and caring for the wounded, of which there was a considerable number on both sides. The Eighth New-Hampshire regiment, with a cavalry company and a section of artillery, were also sent out on the right to a considerable dis

Since the battle of Cane Hill the forces of General Blunt have been occupying a radius of country of some sixteen miles, comprising Dutch Town Mills, Boonsboro, or Cane Hill, and Rhea's Mills, the great wheat and corn district of Arkansas. General Salamon's brigade occupied Rhea's Mills; the other two brigades, Dutch Town and Boonsboro. On the morning of the fifth, (Gen. Blunt learned thatd the Wire road, leading from Fayetteville to Van Buren; while General Herron, of Schofield's division, was on the same road, making a forced march to reenforce Blunt at Cane Hill or Boonsboro. About three miles, a little south of east of Rhea s Mills, Gen. Herron and Hindman ran together, similar to two locomotives, both rather thunder-struck at this unexpected meeting. Now the fun commenced. The men were speedily formed, the guns unlimbered, and the war-dogs let loose. Blunt's division he
Lieutenant Simpson, in position, and my two regiments of infantry and a squadron of cavalry, commanded by Lieutenant Beecher, in line to support them. I then ordered the troops to bivouac for the night. At daylight on the morning of the eighteenth, formed the line and continued the march without interruption until we arrived at Swift Creek road, at ten o'clock A. M. Learning that the road to Swift Creek was blockaded for a number of miles, I continued on the direct road to Blunt's Creek Mills. At twelve M., the main column being some distance in the rear, I halted to rest and allow the column to close up. After a halt of about two hours I was joined by General Naglee and staff, when we immediately pushed forward, and reached Blunt's Creek about half-past 3 P. M. Found the bridge over the creek destroyed; but with very little labor the pioneers constructed a passage through the mill. Received orders from General Naglee to halt the column when it arrived, bivouac, and move fo
